't understand how these people cannot do their jobs that they're elected to. so i'm wondering what's your take on what's going on in washington? you're sitting in washington. >> right. the at least we have bipartisan agreement it's all nuts, right? everyone agrees this is ridiculous and in spite of what they say, they've been talking about it for months and years and there was ample talk about what a framework should be through the election, which wasn't that long ago. there's plenty of debate. to tie the two stories we have been talking wiabout together, there was a colin powerful doctrine that general schwartzkopf executed so well in the first gulf war. which was have an exit strategy and using overwhelming force. this congress had an exit strategy. they had the idea of overwhelming force, and they set themselves these limits. if they got through this deadline the pain would be so great on themself -- this is self-imposed -- they would find a way out. they have not executed their own strategy and been able to vote for their own leadership. what you have in washington just to take a step back
. here's how mitt romney explained why he lost to president obama just days after the election. >> what the president's campaign did was focus on certain members of his base coalition, give them extraordinary financial gifts from the government, and then work very aggressively to turn them out to vote, and that strategy worked. >> that explanation got mitt romney attacked and condemned by the likes of bobby jindahl and other republicans. they're now trying a new approach. tag romney said this about his father. he wanted to be president less than anyone i knew in my entire life. he had no desire to run, says tag, who worked with his mother and to persuade his father to seek the presidency. if he could have found someone else to take his place, he would have been ecstatic to step aside. too bad he never told newt gingrich that. joining me now, msnbc's joy reed. i'm on the verge of feeling sorry for them, trying to come up with these crazy reasons about why he lost. and now they want to pretend that this guy who lived his whole life in order to run for president didn't really want to run f

than their elected representatives are. there's a mismatch right now between how everybody else is thinking about these problems. democrats and republicans. outside of this town and how folks are operating here. we've just got to get that aligned. nobody can get a hundred percent of what they want. and this is not simply a contest between parties in terms of who looks good and who doesn't. >> david corn, that is the sentiment i made reference to moments ago. that's what i hear on a day-to-day basis. people are critical on the rs and the ds and say my god, why can't they be adults and hash out a deal here? >> the real issue is republy lan house members. not even republican senators. he's doing what he often does, he's being soft on the opposition at this point in time. he also mentioned he was talking to john boehner. i think he still has some faith here -- or hope. so in a statement today, he didn't really whack boehner at all. he didn't make the distinction between democrats and republicans and just attacked the vague congress. but at the end of the day, it's quite clear that h
to there this quickly. >> you pleased that president obama was re-elected? >> yes. very much so. >> why? >> i think he's a good man. i think he cares about people. as a health activist, i think he is trying very hard to help people get good access to care. >> your father said there are two kinds of people in the world, givers and takers. the takers may eat better, the givers will sleep better. >> yes, do you think that's true? >> do you sleep well? >> i do. how about you? >> probably not as well as you. i don't raise $800 million a year. it's extraordinary. the statistics, 7,000 children are treated there free of charge every year. between thanksgiving and new year, i think, since 2004, you've raised $312 million just in that period. >> yes, yes. >> which is amazing. it shows me also that america, for all of the faults that it has right now, and they get well talked about, it's a very giving, big hearted country. >> absolutely. and also a lot of people know about st. jude firsthand. it's amazing. no place i go to speak is there someone that doesn't stand up and say my cousin went there, my neighbor we
united is a horrible thing people can spend and waste this amount of money on elections? think of the people that could benefit from that money. >> there have been two elections since i have been in america. two elections where one party has had far more financial firepower. one was with meg whitman and one was with romney. the most money lost. what does that tell you? >> the people are getting smarter. they're going, i don't like this amount of money spent on this election. there should be a given -- campaign finance reform is very important. i hope somebody does something about it. you should have a given amount, equal amount, equal air time. that's it. you know? that idea of corporations being people, no, no. this is a country of, by and for the people. not of, by and for the corporation. you know? it's like because i'm so against gmos, the modified food and i'm so against lobbying, you know, like chemical companies lobbying and proposition 37 was bad. that's scary. the poison in our foods and in the air and pollution. they give discretionary polluters -- we are having clima
, this last election by blaming republicans. does he think he will get blamed for this? no. he figures i can do whatever i want. leave the republicans out for dead. >> eric: he is winning the messaging game. that is clear. >> andrea: i say that with confidence. he was able to say look, i was willing to meet them halfway. more than 50%. they don't want to work with us together. he is coming off strong, coming off the supporters, sticking to his position that he pledged to them with the campaign promises. what looks like house in disarray is boehner's house. >> bob: swy j to hear from greg. he's sitting on the edge of his chair. >> kimberly: he is medicated. >> greg: this is so boring. maybe i speak for a small percentage of the audience but this is boring and upsetting. we know the outcome. president obama set up republicans. going over the cliff is like a water slide. defense cut and high taxes. all that misses is the free transgender surgery. you the utopian liberal dream. >> kimberly: you know it. >> greg: biggest thing for me is how obama is obsessed with the 2% he is on class warfare dis
: people say republican goes down either way on this. but the house and the senate, this last election by blaming republicans. does he think he will get blamed for this? no. he figures i can do whatever i want. leave the republicans out for dead. >> eric: he is winning the messaging game. that is clear. >> andrea: i say that with confidence. he was able to say look, i was willing to meet them halfway. more than 50%. they don't want to work with us together. he is coming off strong, coming off the supporters, sticking to his position that he pledged to them with the campaign promises. what looks like house in disarray is boehner's house. >> bob: swy j to hear from greg. he's sitting on the edge of his chair. >> kimberly: he is medicated. >> greg: this is so boring. maybe i speak for a small percentage of the audience but this is boring and upsetting. we know the outcome. president obama set up republicans. going over the cliff is like a water slide. defense cut and high taxes. all that misses is the free transgender surgery. you the utopian liberal dream. >> kimberly: you know it. >> gr
, calling it revolting and tone deaf. i spoke to senator-elect chris murphy just a short time ago. >> senator-elect murphy, i wanted to get your response, your reaction to the nra's -- it wasn't really a press conference, just their statement. >> i was in grace mcdonnell's funeral. when i got out, i was shown a copy of the statement. i nearly became sick. by the time i had gotten to the next funeral, to little dylan hockley's funeral, the horror had already started to spread through the 200, 300 people who were there. dylan's family talked about the fact that they knew that something good was going to come from dylan's death, there was going to be change in this country. i can't speak for ian and nicole, nor for the other parents, but i'm pretty sure they don't think that change is more guns. that's essentially what the nra said today, that the solution to this mass killing in newtown is more guns in schools, in homes. more guns throughout the streets of america. >> yeah, there was a lot the nra didn't address. essentially, it seems to me they're also then calling for armed guards
scenario has been we're going off the cliff. we said that the day after the election, we standby it today. if you do that, you're talking about the largest tax increase in our country's history, a considerable amount of spending cuts, and in the short-term, probably hit the stock prices on the order of 10%. >> if i give you a cliff deal. okay. i'm going to give you a cliff deal for middle class extensions, 250,000, you're right the top rates will go up. but if you get that deal in january, that does save us from the recession scenario, the really deep gloom scenario. >> this is the big debate. our view has been if you get a deal fairly quickly in the new year, it's hardly the end of the world. the question really or the debate really accelerates if you start getting closer to january 15th or ultimately the inauguration. do you do more serious damage to the economy that makes it more difficult to recover? >> they can withhold changing the withholding rates. i know that. >> sure. listen, the president and the treasury secretary has enormous leeway on january 15th, which presumably is everyb
won the election. senate democratic leadership aide tells me that will remains a 50/50 chance we will get a mini deal temporary extension of tax cuts under $250,000 before the january 1 deadline when we would go over the cliff. will are no assurances of that. a white house official told me as president obama prepares to fly back to conduct and participate in the negotiations at the end, there has been no progress over the holiday weekend. michelle, i'm afraid that people who are looking for a deal and looking for a deal by december 31, all hope is not lost. it is not looking good at the moment. >> let's go back to this hitting the debt ceiling on monday. we learned of this because treasury secretary tim good night mother sent a letter to the honorable harry reid majority leader. and that's where he outline it is fact that in three business days, the summit government is going to run out of borrowing capacity. john, if there were a treasurer in a business who went to their boss and said by the way, three business days, the working capital account dies and as a result, you are not
danger of not being re-elect side a conservative challenger ran against them saying hey, you supported a tax increase and you supported something president obama liked and that's what they have to think about each day they go to work and that's why they don't compromise on things they should compromise on. >> lynn, you said you're want optimistic about a deal being struck. do you still feel that way? >> oh, i think i would put the optimism meter up a notch or two just because people are working on there, and the more you look at the limited number of hours left, you actually probably can buy a little more time because for practical matter, the markets are go -- i believe are closing early on monday or at least there's not a lot of trading and if you need more time to let the ink dry on a stopgap measure and if people work on new year's day and the real deadline is noon january 3rd on thursday when this congress expires and these members and you have to swear in the new congress. >> so i even see a little more leeway, if it's just a matter to get the paperwork in order, but it is just d
clear now, mr. president, that the speakers's number one goal is to get elected speaker on january 3rd. the house is not even here. he's told me it will give him two days to get back here, not two days, 48 hours. they don't even have enough of the leadership here to meet to talk about it. they have done it with conference calls. people are spread all over the country because the speaker is basically waiting for january aboutrd. now, the president campaigned on raising taxes on people making more than $250,000 a year. the bush era tax cuts will expire at the end of this year. obama was elected with a surplus of about 3 million votes. he won the election. he campaigned on this issue. again, the speaker can't take yes for an answer. the president has presented to him something that would prevent us from going over the cliff. it was in response to something the speaker gave to the president himself, but, again, i guess with the dysfunctional republican caucus in the house even the speaker can't tell what he's going to do because he backed off even his own proposal. mr. president, the house
come off the dow very similar to what we saw after the election when we don't get a deal. this comes home. people don't realize what this is going to do. this is not healthy. this is not good. so what we're going to get is this wakeup call and i think people are getting a gift right now, opening the screens, take some off the table. at least place protective stops so you know where you will get out. >> rick santelli, is that how you read the message of the market right now? >> you know, i think the market's major movement with regard to the lack of a solution on the fiscal cliff has been more of what we've seen not more of what we think we're going to see. i'm referring specifically to some of the special dividends, some of the tax issues, some of the buy backs, some of the way, you know, states and trusts are being manipulated and moved to deal with the potential worst case scenarios. i think in terms of the market our guests just referred to some of the volatility. you know, as congress called it a day or as the boehner bill didn't pass the plan b. but i remember the t.a.r.p. vote.
will there a transitional government formed and then elections but we're still not at that stage yet, suzanne. >> do we think he's bringing anything to the table that kofi annan did not who failed in brings these sides together? >> yes. and in failed, it may be a matter of timing. certainly the matter of violence has an eastbound. 40,000 report lid dead. brahimi has not had that success either but he's plugging away. he's been the man in the field from the u.n. from haiti to yemen. he's not going to give up at the moment, but the key is russia perhaps may be pulling slightly away from president assad, wa wanting to get something resolved but moments ago it was said that the plan that brahimi said could happen in a few months. those same games going on in the diplomatic front. >> we've seen this. we've seen reports from others including arwa damon, the civilians who have died in the air strikes outside of the bakeries just to get bread. the amount of casualties. i mean in the hundreds now. just looking at the carnage and the numbers and just the loves lost, does that make this peace talk and this deal e
, this is what we elected and they're doing everything they can to not pay attention to that and to go to their separate corners and to be separate and to pretend that their way is not the only way. >> and it could result in people being called into, like, their supervisor's offices and their supervisor goes, i'm sorry, people are actually losing jobs because of this. >> but is there what the people voted for? there are some that think this is what the president voted for. >> how can you think that the american people didn't vote for this? >> let me get to these economical reports. there are a number on today's economic calendar. maybe most importantly are the weekly jobless claims, expected to rise by 4,000. and that would be to 356. and at 10:00, new home sales and consumer confidence which will be interesting to do. also this morning, the kansas city fed survey. the lead story in the journal today is a 6.9% rise in house prices so far this year. since january. and some people are saying after some false starts, residential has concerned. >> well, you're right. >> you can have some r
education, all that stuff. they don't care about that. they spend the money on what they want to get elected. >> when you're saying that the previous mayor spent all the money, you're talking about mayor daly. rahm emanuel is in place now. >> right. >> he spent all the money on what? and then, two, what is the realistic proposal here to reverse the violence? >> well, over 20 years i can give you a laundry list of corruption and cronyism. but you know it well because you were here as well. and you saw it. there was a reporter once for "time" doing a cnn profile, comparing richard daly to andy of maybury and said he presides over chicago like andy of maybury. now that reporter is the press secretary for president obama. so there had been -- not you, obviously, but there had been people who were papering over and smooching up and making things look nice when they weren't nice. the city is broke. we're a thousand police officers down, at least, right? and now the city is creating this news flap, public relations issue, saying there is now we're going to take one off the 500 and make it 499. you'
or 150 democrats. that's what -- that's what our constituents think they are electing us to do, go work in a bipartisan basis. but because of the rules of the house, speaker boehner just keeps saying i'm ignoring the democrats. i'm going to try to put together a plan that will appeal just to republicans. and that's where he's -- that's where he is running into this brick wall. >> all right. thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. >>> here's one take on the fiscal cliff. john boehner's animal house. we are bogey to talk to "the washington post" writer who says in boehner's house the animals are rampaging. what's that mean? we will have an answer for you in the next half hour. >>> nasty weather is lingering just before christmas. aaa predicts 93 million of us will be traveling long distances over the holidays. that includes those that are flying. with a hello to you. how is it looking out there? not too bad in terms of traffic behind you. >> that's exactly right. good afternoon. it isn't too bad. here chilly but sunny and no problems to report in atlanta. most major airports throug
to give in a whole lot more because he won the election and he ran on a platform of increasing taxes on those making $250,000 or more. chuck schumer addressed this issue earlier today. take a listen. >> on taxes, i know it's hard for the republicans, but the president ran on that platform, $250,000. no tax increases to people below but taxes for people above. he won 60% of the voters said they were for it in the exit polls including some republicans. >> reporter: so again there is senator chuck schumer. so certainly still big topic of conversation despite the fact that everyone is now on recess. alex, yesterday we spoke to some folks who said this is really weighing on them as they enter the holiday season, as they do their christmas shopping, the uncertainty in washington kind of passing a cloud over their holiday. as for president obama, this is a working vacation, but he's clearly also relaxing quite a bit as well. he played a game of golf yesterday, went to dinner with the first lady and some friends. today, alex, partisan bickering will be put aside when many members of congress
guidelines. parliamentary elections are scheduled in two months -- and the opposition hopes to present a united front by then. some 68-percent of egyptians did not vote in the referendum. >> former president george h. w. bush is showing signs of recovery but may not be home to celebrate christmas with his family. he has been hospitalized since november with a brown tide is related cough. in a statement from hospital his doctors are optimistic he will make a full recovery. however they're being cautious and want him to build up his energy before he is released >> funeral services were held today for the hawaiian senator. friends family and admirers remember him as a world war two veteran and a lifelong public servant. war than 1000 people including the president were in attendance at the national memorial cemetery of the pacific. he died last week from respiratory complications. he was 88 years old >> it looks like a lot of you put off holiday shopping to the very last minute. next we will be checking in on the procrastinators >> also cardinal francis george makes a special holiday
. the opposition is also gearing up for parliamentary elections, which are supposed to take place within two months. in previous elections we saw the opposition unorganized and divided. this time they say they have a unified front to put as many as possible in the new parliament to change the constitution. while we see it unford, there's an economic crisis. egypt's economy is in dire straits, and the muslim brotherhood and islamic allies need you to unite with the option if they push through tough austerity measures which are fairly unpopular. the two sides don't seem like they're going to unite anytime soon, at least not until the parliamentary election. the economy just has to wait. ian lee, cnn, cairo. >>> in india protesters demand more protection for women. this is after a brutal rape aboard a bus. we'll talk with a woman that lived in new delhi and knows the dangers for women on public transportation. and a choice.with artn take tylenol or take aleve, the #1 recommended pain reliever by orthopedic doctors. just two aleve can keep pain away all day. back to the news. has oats that can help low
the party label and demand it of our elected officials and the people representing us. a lot of times politicians act because the citizens are demanding it and crying out for it. >> right. >> that's what has to happen on this issue. >> i think, you're right, this is not -- >> we have to lead and they will follow. >> this is not a democrat or republican issue, taken is, it's going to take all of us to do it. and we have to take the politics out of it. l.z., i'll give you the last word. go ahead and go on as long as you want. sorry i cut you off. >> what she described is a microcosm of what's wrong in washington. there's this notion that the nra is a defender of the second amendment and the fact is that our elected officials and the president are supposed to be defenders of the second amendment, defenders of the constitution, not a lobbying group but it's the lobbyists who have our government by the throats, not the voters but the lobbyists. you're seeing politicians make decisions based on what they think the money is going to say from the lobbying groups. the nra is one example. once
mandate of re-election and the fact he ran on raising taxes if he was given a second term, why is there such this stalemate and trepidation in washington, d.c. to get a deal done? >> reporter: how many hours do we have? let me try it this way. there's a group of hard core tea party republicans but democrats say we won because as your poll shows most americans support the president's position on higher taxes on top earners and seemingly at this point about leverage rather than compromise, and frankly, a reluctance on both sides to have the first set of fingerprints on significant spending cuts, whether it's defense ovr entitlement program. >> thank you. and merry christmas to you and your team there. >> merry christmas to you guys. >> thank you. >>> in terms of politics and a deal, wyoming senator says he thinks that the white house want it is country to go over the fiscal cliff to give the president leverage. >> when i listen to the president, i think the president is eager to go over the clip for political purposes. i think he sees a political victory at the bottom of the clif
's handing it over. he's the only western this afternoon who doesn't have to bow to the god of re-election, he, if anyone, could compromise, he doesn't have to worry about getting re-elected again. that's driving decision making on both sides when it comes to congress, yet, he doesn't lead. he hands it over to a man who hasn't passed a budget in years. >> at 3:00, we'll meet. and i'll tell congressional leaders, you come up with the package, tyler. >> the real tragedy, what it says about the quality of leadership in this country. they can't lead, seem unwilling to lead. that's what's distressing to individual voters and to the markets. >> thank you, joining us, and thank you, out there. we'll join "mad money" right after this break. and we'll see michelle right after that on a special "kudlow report." let's give thanks - for an idea. a grand idea called america. the idea that if you work hard, if you have a dream, if you work with your neighbors... you can do most anything. this led to other ideas like liberty and rock 'n' roll. to free markets, free enterprise, and free refills. it put a
grover. he's not even an elected official. >> i like grover. i think he's an interesting guy. >> that's like i respect -- there's always a but coming after that. >> i think there's a little bit too much ideology and he's too rigid. but require respective of that, i would like to have a congress person on who signed the pledge who said i can't sign it today, but i'm happy to sign it on january 2nd. >> will they admit that? >> we've gotten ahead of ourselves on our spending, okay? and i understand maybe you need somehow to just concede that we've spent it so we need to pay for it. but if you take norquist at face value, at the turn of the 20th century where government spending was 9% of gdp, we're now at 25%. there are some that say, take what we give you and retrofit government to the size of 19% or 20%. do that first. he just wants to shrink what it's grown to, this unwielding federal government that -- don't you think 25% needs to come down? >> well, part of that is cyclical. >> okay. so at 3%? >> 21, 22. >> i would say 22. >> so we have to get it down to 20.5. >> the three big beast
. this is the first time they have met since the election. guest: november 16 was the only time they met. it is good news they are talking. are they going to keep talking? will they say, "we will see everybody tomorrow." they would keep talking. what is going to happen on the floors of the house and senate. the senate needs to extend the tax rates a year and amended and that can be done in a matter of hours. when they agree to that -- would they agree to that? we also have to watch the tone. i go back to last friday. there was a press conference and 95% was angry and criticizing democrats but at the end, john boehner said he was still optimistic. host: maybe we should send your dog in. if there is no agreement, mobil the new congress face -- what will the new congress face? guest: it depends what the markets do. doesn't take a lot to get legislation on the floor. if we have gone over the cliff, what motivates congress is the markets. if the dow is down hundreds of points, they will act fast. if the markets are giving a tentative signal, i do not think the urgency will be fthere. host: the relationsh

, was elected in 2009. i am 38. this is where you say i look much younger than that. [laughter] i love coming to this space, good lighting. [laughter] but i think, again, i can speak to this personally because now that i am an elected official, the only woman serving on that body and the first woman of color in that body in its history -- mass. [applause] now, why does that matter, why is that relevant? i appreciate the applause, it has nothing to do with a personal achievement. i think it's a shared victory for all of us. it means that the solutions we're developing in government are more comprehensive and fully informed because of that perspective. so i've thought a great deal about this issue of attraction and retex, but more than that, how do we keep native bostonians? because we were losing young people who had been, who were raised here who were going someplace else. they do come back, though, i have to say that. they sort of go on this pill grammage to see what is out there, but they do come back. and so to ed's point and barbara's as well around social issues, this is an issue i'm wor
as citizens if we want to see changes happen to take off the party label and to demand it of our elected officials and the people representing us. a lot of times politicians act because the citizens are demanding it. >> right. >> and crying out for it. and that's what has to happen on this issue. >> i think you're right. >> we have to lead, and they will follow. >> this is not a republican and democrat issue. i always say that -- or democratic issue. and it is because it's going to take all of us to do it, and we have to take the politics out of it. l.z., i'll give you the last word. go ahead and go on as long as you want. i'm sorry i cut you off zoosh that's quite all right. i was just going to say that what anna is describing is a microcosm with what's wrong with washington. there is this notion that the mra m mnar is a defender of the second amendment. our elected officials are supposed to be defenders of the second amendment. not a lobbying group. the lobbyists have our deposit by the throats. not the voters, the lobbyists. you are seeing politicians make decisions based upon what th
. furthermore, michelle, after the election this past november where you rightly say -- but so did a majority in the house of representatives as republicans we have a responsibility to stay true to our principles john boehner said to the president you what? you won, but so did we and so we'll meet you half way. you said you wanted to raise taxes and generate $800 billion in revenue over ten years and we'll give you the revenue and we'll give you exactly what you want which is 800 billion in revenue, but let's make good on the campaign pledge which is $3 in cuts for every $1 in revenue and president obama didn't meet us half way and he didn't only offer $2.4 billion in cuts and he wanted twice the revenue. he said 800 billion is what he said during the election. >> and 6 trillion. >> yeah. >> spending is not the problem. >> no, i agree with you. >> i'm sorry. >> revenue is not the problem. >> yeah. >> it's been a long week, hasn't it? >> good luck on sunday, let's see what happens and we'll have you back afterward and see what's going on. >> let's get the market reaction. eamon hinted at this,
. >> schieffer: how long have you been in the congress gijust got elected to my second term, have been in public office for 18 years serving the good people throughout south carolina. >> schieffer: let me ask you first about the whole business with the national rifle association. their idea seems basically to be just add armed security to all of our nations' schools. do you think that's feasible or is it a good idea? >> the president has just established a committee to take a serious, holistic look at what we need to do as a nation to make sure that our kids are safe. to rush to judgment, i think, is a bit premature on what we should do. i think after we have the commit's report, we should take a very serious look at whatever it takes to keep our kids safe at school. we don't know what that is yet. we're just finishing the week of so many funerals, we should-- we should continue to pray for the family members. >> schieffer: but would you be in favor of changing some laws, like, for example, banning these assault weapons? >> i would love to see what comes out of the committee. i think with vice p

the election, it's as if the differences between the two sides have hardened even more, and even if they do something small to prevent serious harm to the economy, what does that even say about the potential for tax reform in the coming year? what's that say about the potential to really try and write our nation financially? that will not get done. i mean, what it going to take to get them to act responsibly in the best interest of the country? >> well, you know, the lubrication for democracy is for people who feel differently to come together and reach compromise. i mean, that's always been the way things worked, and i served in congress for 30 years with people who, at the end of the day, even though they felt differently and strongly about things r they wanted to come together understanding they needed to compromise. you know, you mentioned, for example, tax reform. we need tax reform in the country, and i was in the 1986 ways and means committee, and reagan was president, democratic congress, it was hard to do, a long time, but we did it, and in the end, it required a lot of compromise

started off so well, in terms of expectations for economic growth. we had an election this year, too. i think that's another thing that is sort of the key. we hit europe again as we had the last two years previously. but this last quarter, i think there's been a lot more optimism, even with the fiscal cliff sitting there, as sort of this potential, real roadblock at the end of the year. perhaps even too much optimism some would say. when you speak to ceos, there's still a lack of confidence, i would argue on the part of many of them, that you would like to see more of. perhaps a reflection of their concerns about the fiscal crisis that may weigh on our tax spending policies. >> we'll start over the next week or so talking about performers for the year. top s&p performer is pulty, which says how people are viewing how people will view what's driving the economy in the coming year. bank of america has doubled. worst performer on the dow, hpq. there will be crystallizations of what happened overall. >> the perspective on this whole thing is the s&p 500 is still up 14% year-to-date. despite
